Peace of mind is one of the many things that are not for sale! Getting it and sticking to it is hard I believe. This post of mine, as the title shows shall reveal the secrets to acquire peace of mind.
We deprive our mind off peace, when we lose our urges in the want. The moment you feel, you have everything and everything is yours you can then re-pacify your mind. Although an awesome automated chemical mechanism exists to control the mood of your mind but to a great extent it can be harnessed and therefore controlled by motivating or editing your thinking process.
You are having enough money, you are “full” but still, you are far from the state of satisfaction. The state of satisfaction is a bar one puts to ones deed/need reaching which he/she screams out loud “OH I HAVE GOT IT”. The peace of your mind thus depends on this bar ( how far you set it). On having enough money (e.g. $5000) if you start thinking of the amount with Bill Gates you are kicking peace out of your mind. But if you think of the guy who is singing on street and waiting for you to get a cent you’re a inviting peace in your mind.
The above paragraph should not drive you to weave your dreams thinking of the street singer. You must weave big and bigger dreams each night. To achieve your dream the street singer is your drug to keep you alive.
When you are thinking of Bill Gates, you can hardly take him as inspiration from the situation you are in. Instead he would turn in to a frustration stimulant for you and then when you start thinking of the street singer your spirits get rejuvenated since you find yourself at a much better position and you start planning for the next day to climb a step higher!
So to see how up you are, look at the ground not the sky. This will take you higher breaking the heights of sky with peace as the spirit of mind.
